Its come take from the rope
It feels so still I could just die
Its going to reach up inside
Oh how the blood stains well on white

Ooh the coral fang sinking in to make you well
Ooh the coral fang sinking in to make you ill

Its come to rape what you hide
It fills the years with reprise, disgust, disguise

I see burn my own funeral pyre
An from your mouth I will rise out

Ooh the coral fang sinking in to make you well
Ooh the coral fang sinking in to make you ill

When the fang sinks in my skin
When the fang sink's down in
Make your eyes white and roll right into him
When the coral stains the skin
Disease is cheap scars are polished clean

Ooh the coral fang sinking to take at will

    General Comment:I've always taken this song to be about heroin addiction...
    the fang being the needle, sinking in to skin, making you ill, making you well (as in "getting well" after sicking out). I suppose it might be coral because in Australia they get pink rocks instead of black tar.
    "Making your eyes white" makes sense because your pupils become pinholes when it hits and you feel like you're closer to god, so maybe that's the "him". And ESPECIALLY the part about "disease is cheap, scars are polished clean", obviously you can catch shit from dirty points, and scars would be trackmarks, that eventually fade. How dope "fills the years with reprise, disgust, disguise", and how it "takes at will", draining away your soul and leaving you a shell of a person basically. That's really what I get from this song. I love this song too.

    General Comment:All your ideas make sense, maybe it's just one of those songs that has several explanations to it. I think the most realistic outlook is ladyswitchblade's though, deep thinking there! nevertheless, neat song, the chorus is really catchy.

    General Comment:from brodys writings the best i can understand is that coral fang is a metaphor for something but i think there is only one person who really knows what it is....
    great song though
